Jay Ferro, Chief Information Officer for The American Cancer Society and David Favero, CEO and Co-Founder of RenterUp joined us in studio to discuss the use of technology in simplifying business.

Headquartered in Atlanta, The American Cancer Society is a nonprofit organization which funds cancer research, provides programs and services for those currently fighting cancer and offers tips for healthy living so we can all stay cancer free.

RenterUp uses technology (such as your mobile device and tablets) to help landlords better manage their rental properties.

In the headlines:

  • Mayor Reed says the city has a $900M backlog of infrastructure improvements including 4 bridges that are rated “at or near collapse.”
  • A new hotel is being considered for the Tech Square area.
  • Plans are in the works for a new Georgia-made electric car. Some interesting details… it will be a three-wheeler, PLUS they are planning to avoid the franchised dealer sales approach and the sell direct approach to go a whole different route.
  • Starting off December with some controversy, Atlanta’s Fire Chief has been suspended after publishing a book that calls homosexuality “unclean” and “vulgar.”
